IRVINE, Calif. - Junior Alex Henry's game-winning goal and assist led the UC Davis men's soccer team to back-to-back wins over UC Riverside and Cal State Fullerton and led to his selection as the Big West Conference Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced on Monday.
In Friday's 1-0 victory over UC Riverside, Henry lined up an indirect free kick on the right wing and sent it into the penalty area. The cross found Kevin Schulte running into the six-yard box and Schulte volleyed it home for the Aggies' only goal of the game.
On Sunday, Henry scored a gem of a goal in the 79th minute against Cal State Fullerton. With the game knotted at one goal apiece, Henry collected a clearance by the Titan defense and, from around 35 yards out, struck a low, hard shot that skipped through the Titan back line and into the lower right corner of the goal.
It's the first career Player of the Week honor for Henry.
UC Davis has now won three straight games and own a 3-1 record in Big West play.
